Saginaw Township Police Chief Donald Pussehl said a 2015 Ford Focus heading north on Midland Rd. crossed the center line and hit a southbound 2004 Mercury Marquis traveling in the fast lane head-on. The impact caused the Marquis to hit a 2016 Buick Regal that was southbound in the outside lane.

A 79-year-old woman from Davison who was a front seat passenger in the Mercury Marquis was pronounced dead at the scene. Several other people were injured and had to be extricated from the vehicles. A 34-year-old woman driving the Ford Focus, a 66-year-old woman driving the Buick Regal, and an 86-year-old man driving the Mercury Marquis were all taken to the hospital by ambulance.  Midland Rd. was closed for several hours after the crash.
